A.P.R.

What is the current
Interest rate on hate?
So far the APR has
Yielded some nice profits
So there's no
Need to stop it
Or for them to knock it
Why?
Because their
Capital Gains increase
When we die or
Are in pain
Cash flow doesn't decrease
That is why their pockets
Are forever bulging
As they are laughing
At us
All the way to the Bank
When it is us that
They should thank
Because slogans and
Anthems don't come
Cheap
Not does
Social Justice
Because the
Substance of all
Things hoped for
Is competing
With the
Church and the
Liquor store
Keeping the
Down trodden
Poor
Unsure
Of the actual
Cost
Because it
Gets lost
In translation
Depending on
The situation
As the profit and loss
Shows that
Black Lives Matter
Is now so valuable
And viable
In terms of
Dollars and Cents
Which means
When common sense
Is applied
Further support
May or may not
Be denied
And
Or
Justified
As the truth
Needs to be
Ratified
After being
Crucified
So
It is expected
To be
Resurrected
And corrected
As Bean Counters
Calculate
The going rate
For hate
So far
Because
The APR
Has
Yielded more profits
For them
Therefore there's no
Need to stop it
Or for them to knock it
Because their pockets
Are forever bulging
As they are laughing
At us
All the way to the Bank
When it is us that
They should thank
Because slogans and
Anthems don't come
Cheap
Read 'em and weep
Read 'em and weep

"Keeping the downtrodden /poor/ unsure...
amen...that is their answer...
as Pink Floyd sang "no more turning away from the weak and downtrodden"
that is what is needed...true what you say..."Slogans and anthems don't come cheap"
